Autumn Leaves: Colorful Reminders
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. ~ Albert Camus
Savor the next thirty-nine days of autumn...Enjoy the orange, burgundy, and yellow leaves as they delicately swirl past your window, breathe the fresh air, bite into a crisp apple, plant your mums.
Today, my friend, RayDeen, posted a note on her Facebook wall. She is asking for prayers for her childhood friend, Lisa, who is losing her fight with cancer.
As I sat at my desk watching the leaves dance, her message once again reminded me to be grateful for every day and the simple moments that make them special. I share this personal moment with you in hopes that it will serve as a welcome reminder in your life, too.
RayDeen, may many thoughts and prayers find you, Lisa, and her family.

My thoughts are with Lisa as well as RayDeen...sorry to hear about both women.
I am taking your words to heart and trying each day to be grateful for what is around me, no matter how simple.

@Ching Ya: Thank you for your kind words and the prayers for Lisa. Since publishing this entry, I learned that RayDeen suffered a terrible accident. As a result, she has undergone serious surgery...my heart aches for both women. Prayers, kind thoughts, and good wishes will go a long way for both ladies.

A beautiful message, yet saddened by the news about Lisa. Will pray for her and tweet about this, hopefully more people can learn about the precious of life while being a little bit more grateful for everything they have in life. Bless you Luci. *hugs*
